BMO Team of the Week (BMO TOTW), now entering its sophomore year, is a program dedicated to acknowledging youth soccer teams (age 7-12) that display team pride, spirit, community commitment and passion for the game.

From April 2 – July 13, Canadian soccer coaches and parents can nominate their favourite youth soccer team by logging on to BMOsoccer.com and entering an essay, photos or video to demonstrate why their team deserves to be the BMO Team of the Week.

Weekly winners, selected by a panel of BMO judges, will be announced starting on April 18th and will receive $500, track suits and a gift to local charity.

Each of the winning teams will become finalists for the grand prize which includes $125,000 towards a renovation of their soccer pitch, the largest prize ever in Canada for a single-sport facility refurbishment. They will be named BMO Team of the Week 2012 Champion and will also receive a road trip to either a Toronto FC, Vancouver Whitecaps FC, Montreal Impact  FC or Canadian National Team home game, and a donation to a charity of the team’s choice.

The selection of the BMO Team of the Week Grand Prize finalist will be open to the Canadian public through online voting between August 13 and August 27.
